    Not much snow to be seen on the mountains after this hot spell:


    But roses are thriving:




    As is the beach-like stone garden near the bus station:






    I presume somebody have been watering the plants, since there have hardly been any rain for a month.

              Flowers are being put around the statue of Joachim Ronneberg at the Raadhuset Plaza in Aalesund:




              The statue was put up on his 95th birthday, after he had finally agreed. He insisted that the name of ALL participants in the actions he had been part of during the war was included.

                May he rest in eternal peace and may his actions never be forgotten in the future.
